than making them automatic meat cleaver cuts as so many worry about they would give the pentagon some discretion and latitude to target the spending cuts themselves. whether they will reduce the number of spending cuts that hit the pentagon and the dod that remains to be seen. what we do understand is in a few hours the republicans in both the house and senate will say let's give the pentagon some jurisdiction over these spending cuts rather than imposing automatic cuts that in some cases could do more damage than good. jon. jon: carl cameron on capitol hill in washington thank you. jenna: as the president looks for a short-term solution to the nation's spending problem the congressional budget office has come out with a new and quite frankly disturbing report about our financial situation, our soaring debt. right now our debt is at a record of more than $16 trillion. in just ten years the cbo says that number will grow to become 77% of what we produce, what our economy proceed dies. gdp. horry rolori rot man is with us. >> these projections are the latest evidence showing that our go
need a department of labor. even the pentagon, by the way, i'm for a strong military, no doubt about it, there are million americans who don't wear uniform or civilians work for the pentagon. the pentagon is a big bureaucracy. the point i would make, martha. private businesses did this during the recession. they sucked in their stomach, they tightened their belt. they got rid of waste in their budget and why can't government do that? martha: you've been saying it. rick perry tried to do the list you did. things didn't work out very well for him. you did it masterfully. you're not seeing that list from republicans, are you? >> well, i know, --. martha: elected republicans in washington? >> you know what, martha? paul ryan has a budget that passed congress the last two years and that has some pretty specific cuts. you and i might not agree with everything on the list --. martha: but i'm saying average person on the street what would they cut, they would not be able to do that. we have to go. >> everybody loves santa claus. that is why we have a problem and the debt, right? martha: thank y
, when it comes to cuts, maybe it's not as bad as the pentagon and others are warning. because he says republicans should argue that overall defense spending is still on the rise. now, cornyn admits that this is even a change for him. help said he would listen to leon panetta and others say these across the board spending cuts would be devastating. but he says he looked into it and he decided the best message for himself and other republicans, and of course this is the number two senate republican, is to say, you know what, maybe it's not going to be that bad. but as you well know, wolf, arguing that any cuts in military spending is an anthem ma to most republicans so i would imagine he's going to get some backlash on that messaging when he talks to republicans about it tomorrow. >> when it comes to gop legislation to prevent the negative impact from the sequester, what are you hearing, what's going on? >> reporter: what's going on right now is there is sort of the leading idea among senate republicans for a proposal that they will probably vote on this week. is to give the president f
-term cateindicatcateindici. if you're making a 7%, 8% cut in the pentagon, the first thing you must do is pull back an aircraft carrier from the persian gulf. really, it's the first thing? with that said, when you begin looking at the numbers and the difficulty of cutting, you realize you can't furlough uniformed military personnel. you're going to end up furloughing civilians. you can't make certain cuts so they become more drastic. in this situation they could have made more long-term. they have multiple deadlines, as we all know. what people in congress are talking about, how to combine them. how do you combine the sequester with the budget battle coming up, with the debt ceiling fight that's going to come back again. how do you add those together so you come up with a larger deal. >> the washington dimension is striking, too. now you have bob woodward of the "washington post" taking on the white house saying the president is moving the goalpost by insisting on tax revenues being in there. let me read a portion of what's in his opinion piece this morning. the final deal reached between vice pres
